This was my second year co-chairing teacher appreciation at the baby's school. If you read this blog much, you know that we are responsible for things all year-round, but our biggest task is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Monday morning found me loading the car with these goodies:
In hindsight, we should have done a backdrop with Lily-fabric, but some kids made cute posters for us!
Tuesday was the actual national day of celebration so we had "special delivery" notes of appreciation. We even had a cute post-mark (which I can't show for privacy reason).
Wednesday, we had a Pie Bar--who doesn't like pie???
I should crop this to show you how precious it was in person, but I am so lazy right now!
Thursday, Cinco de Mayo, was our luncheon . As we had done in previous years, we had to go Mexican!
Friday was the Grandest Finale of All: The Gift Card Game! Our cute 3rd graders walked around to teachers and staff with a precious poster board filled with gift cards with denominations ranging from $5 to $100 dollars. The idea was that it was a total gamble how much you got or where it was to:
Of course, most people got $5 or $10, but a precious first year teacher got 100 to Gap/Banana/Old Navy and above is a pic of our favorite vegetarian getting $50 to Ruth's Chris. See,its all a gamble??!
It is not hard to want to celebrate these teachers because they do so much above and beyond for our kids. I hope that your teachers are as great and that you get the chance to tell them so! If you are a mom too, you will know this phase of little kids is so short: you might as well celebrate everything!
